"I know who I want to use. But I don't know if I want to anoint anybody," Mattingly said. "I'd really like to see the bullpen get its confidence back and some semblance of order and get the guys in the roles we designed. I know where I want it to go, it just hasn't gone there. They set the roles the way they are pitching. Now it's hard to say, 'That guy deserves that inning.'"

He allowed three hits and two walks in the fourth inning before being pulled, with runners on the corners and one out.

Burgos now has a 6.44 ERA in six starts, with a 1-2 record. He is scheduled to mke his next start Monday against the Twins.
